A vibrant and bright atmosphere, splashed with eye-catching decor and warm, woody themes, Harvest restaurant is a part of the Trademark Hotel in Village Market, located in Gigiri area in Nairobi. Dee (my sister) will feign intense deliberation every single time we are looking for a spot to catch up and fuel up, only for her to declare, "Listen Alex, let's just go to Harvest!".
After devouring a hearty meal, you would think your appetite has been satisfied, right? Wrong! Not at the Harvest restaurant, no Sir/Madam! Upon reading their dessert menu, mystical appetizing magic is unleashed that has you frantically signaling the waiter to come so you can place your order - my sister and I did just that.
She had their deconstructed tiramisu and I opted for a rhubarb and blueberry crumble. "Allow me to deconstruct your palette and reorganize your taste buds!", should be their disclaimer! The presentation was fabulous, with both desserts presented atop sparkling white slates, cups and bowls from what seems to me the lost treasures one hears in folklore. Obviously, we both tasted each other's desserts and they both were delectable!
Their rhubarb and blueberry crumble is served warm, and the portion is huge! The chef gets the balance of sugar just right, making it wonderfully sweet and textured; you will chew with a smile on your face! As if that wouldn't make even the most eager sweet-toothed foodie happy, to cool off all that steaming goodness, you get a side of chilled sorbet!
Deconstructed tiramisu was a first for me but it will definitely not be the last! You get to play with the singular ingredients, dipping ladyfingers in the whipped, cheesy cream and mixing that with the coffee and cocoa before you crunch them in bites that will surely awaken the child in anyone.
Come one and all, I would say, for tasty treats await at Harvest restaurant!
